Oct. 20 — 21, 2021 All Day | Lower Hutt
The Young Grower of the Year finals have been moved from late September to 20-21 October as a result of the Covid lockdown. During the day on 20 October, the finalists will rotate their way through business and practical activities.
The two-day event will run more or less as previously planned, but with precautions in place to reflect the current alert level, including mask wearing and social distance observance. Unfortunately Heather Feetham from Pukekohe will not take part but will compete in the 2022 final instead.
Before the awards dinner on 21 October, the finalists will take part in the Ballance Agri-Nutrients leadership panel and give their views on a contemporary issue. The panel will be followed by the awards dinner, where the finalists will give their speeches before the winners are announced.
The awards dinner is being held at Lower Hutt Events Centre and starts at 5.00pm with the Ballance Agri-Nutrients leadership panel.
